Ecolect is a Rhode Island
In an effort to spread information regarding sustainable materials Ecolect runs the material Petting Zoo, which is an exhibit that travels to design related conferences, seminars, trade shows, in-office events, studios, and educational institutions. The Petting Zoo encourages designers to touch and feel samples to better understand them and their possible applications.
Ecolect is now also offering a subscription service called Greenbox ($849.95 per year). Greenbox is a box of 8 -12 sustainable material samples that are shipped directly to designers every three months. A full year's subscription to Greenbox will provide a studio with a library of almost 50 different material samples.
